NASCAR Issues Statement on Tony Stewart
It certainly seems more, and more likely, we will see Tony Stewart return to racing in the Sprint Cup Series this weekend at Atlanta. First Bob Dillner reported that the number 14 Chevrolet had left Stewart-Haas Racing with Tony's seat in it. Now today we get the following statement from NASCAR by Executive Vice President Steve O'Donnell.
Ty Dillon to Make NASCAR Sprint Cup Debut
this Weekend at Atlanta
Ty Dillon will be joining older brother Austin at the highest level of NASCAR as he makes his Sprint Cup debut at Atlanta Motor Speedway this weekend.. Ty will drive the number 33 Realtree/Rheem Chevrolet SS for Circle Sport Racing in the Oral-B USA 500.
Ty already has a win at Atlanta. He won the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race in 2012 after capturing the pole, and leading 40 laps.
Ty will also be competing in the Nationwide race where he will drive the Yuengling Light Lager Chevrolet Camaro #3.
The young driver spoke about his first Sprint Cup start saying, "It's going to be a pretty special moment when I make those first few laps this weekend, one that I won't forget. I've been fortunate enough in my racing career to have great opportunities like this one. I'm looking forward to racing the number33 Realtree/Rheem Chevrolet under the lights this Labor Day weekend."
